What's a common theme between the Mona Lisa and the "Allegory of the Cave"?
A common theme between the two is the exploration of perception versus reality. "The Cave" explores what people inside a cave see when their only glimpse of the outside world is of shadows things that pass outside the cave cast on the cave wall. Do the shadows represent reality? A question with the Mona Lisa has always been, what is she looking at? People say that her eyes follow them as they move. Is this reality or perception?
